fredtoy commented on Wii U System Update 4.1.0 Available Now:
fredtoy commented on Nintendo and Retro Studios Speak on Resistance...:
Nintendo software on Nintendo hardware. It's their business model. Apple have a similar business model and I don't see anybody making a fuzz about it.
fredtoy commented on 3DS System Update Adds Nintendo Network ID, Mi...:
@Morpheel Indeed it is. I can't count the many times I pressed L or R button by accident while opening the 3DS.
fredtoy commented on Dungeons & Dragons: Chronicles of Mystara Dela...:
Looks like they are waiting for everyone that has another supported platform to get the game there so they can complain about poor sales on Wii U. ¬¬
fredtoy commented on Weirdness: SEGA Employee Has a Bad Day, Says B...:
The guy was a troll.
I belive that Bayonetta 2 is "exactly the Same" as Bayonetta 1 in the same sense that God of War, Uncharted, Gears of War, Legend of Zelda, Super Mario Bros, Elder Scrolls and a lot of other games that belong to franchises are "exactly the Same".
fredtoy commented on Review: The Smurfs 2 (Wii U):
I would be surprised if the game wasn't lame.
fredtoy commented on NES-Inspired Action Platformer Odallus Could B...:
I hope they bring Odallus to WiiU.
fredtoy commented on Yes, Retro City Rampage Has A Release Date:
I almost got it on GOG.com this week. I'm glad that I didn't. Next week I'll get it on WiiWare. =D
fredtoy commented on Nintendo Receives Zero BAFTA Game Awards Nomin...:
It's not about games being good or innovative. It's about industry. As with other industry awards, this reflects that Nintendo isn't a strong brand in UK as Sony or Microsoft are.
fredtoy commented on Rumour: Flashback Remake Coming To Wii U eShop:
I'll get it for sure. I'm a big fan of the original.
fredtoy commented on 8 Bit Weapon Celebrates Over A Decade Of Chipt...:
This album is really good.
fredtoy commented on Nintendo Unveils The Legend of Zelda: Wind Wak...:
My favorite LoZ game. Now I need a WiiU!
fredtoy commented on Project X Zone Fighting To a Worldwide Release...:
I think there are two ways of releasing this game in America / PAL regions.1- They go the niche / special edition way. Something similar to the Last Story release on Wii. 2- They go the download only way.
fredtoy commented on Unepic Adventuring Onto Wii U eShop in 2013:
This game is great! I played it on PC sometime ago. If people want to try, there is a demo for the PC version.
fredtoy commented on Feature: Hands-On With 16-bit RPG Pier Solar:
@Savino It's brazilian portuguese.
fredtoy commented on Dragon Quest VII Set to Venture Onto 3DS:
OMG! This must come to this side of the globe!
fredtoy commented on How Did Nintendo Do At This Year's Golden Joys...:
These industry prizes (any industry), in general, are political. They are not judging the games themselves. They are judging them in context with industry. Nintendo has it's share of players, but, they are not the mainstream on the gaming industry. The so-called hardcore gamers like to think they are an elite of refined gamers, but in fact they are the mainstream of the gaming industry. The hardcore games are the games that often stay on the top of the charts. So, these prizes are focused on them.
fredtoy commented on Nintendo Download: 11th October 2012 (North Am...:
Maybe I'll not get it this week, but, I voted for Last Blade 2. I love this game and I'm sure I'll get it in a near future.
fredtoy commented on Nintendo Download: 4th October 2012 (North Ame...:
I played the original Cave Story on PC. Then, bought and played it again on WiiWare when it was released. Then, I got Cave Story+ on Steam from a Humble Bundle. I think I'll skip this time.
From this week I'll eventually get the NSMB 2 DLC. I don't have the game yet (shame on me =P), but I'll get it in a near future (when i finish beating my 3DS backlog).
fredtoy commented on Nintendo Download: 27th September 2012 (North ...:
This week I'll pass. I have yet to play La-Mulana from last week. But Denpa Men is in my wishlist.
fredtoy commented on Rhythm Hunter: HarmoKnight May Get Groovy in t...:
The game looks interesting. Would be nice to have it localized.
fredtoy commented on Capcom: The Next Gen Doesn't Start With Wii U:
As @AlmightyDerek said, this statement was made from a business point of view. As Dreamcast, and other consoles before it, Wii U may or may not set the trends for the next generation of consoles. I'm not talking about horse power. Wii, love or hate it, set the trend for motion gaming. Every console received a motion controller after the Wii Remote. Xbox 360 set the standard for online gaming and download service.
fredtoy commented on Dragon Quest X Wii U Details Confirmed For Tok...:
I'm already planning to buy a Wii U. With a western release of DQ X it'll be a sure buy.
fredtoy commented on Nintendo Download: 30th August 2012 (North Ame...:
For me, only Theatrhythm demo this week.
I'm interested in Toki Tori. But, as I have the remake on my Android phone, I think I'll save my money for other games.
fredtoy commented on La Mulana Adventures Onto North American WiiWa...:
I was wating the La-Mulana remake on WiiWare since it was announced. Bought it on PC day one. Now I'll buy it again, day one! And the release date couldn't be better. 20th september is my birthday. =)
fredtoy commented on Prince of Persia Creator Is Bringing His Karat...:
Karateka! I played it a lot on my friend's Apple II.
fredtoy commented on Talking Point: What Games Are You Playing This...:
This weekend i'll be on the go. Maybe some Super Mario Land 2 and Etrian Odyssey II on 3DS.
fredtoy commented on Bookstore Dream In Final Chapter of DSiWare Ap...:
Looks like Kairosoft games for Android. They suck your life away.
fredtoy commented on There's a Fluidity Sequel Coming to the 3DS eShop:
This one will be first day buy.
fredtoy commented on Talking Point: Another Look at the News - 20th...:
@theblackdragon I didn't think about the two tablet limit of Wii U and multiplayer games. This is a good use for the pro controller. And I agree with you that one can not say that Activision specifically demanded the pro controller without proof. I wasn't exactly pointing at them. I was thinking about big developers in general.
I can't see this Wii U Pro Controller as something other than concession to third parties.
The original Wii needed the classic controller for VC games and games that didn't fit the Wiimote scheme. But for Wii U, apparently, the original tablet controller can do everything the pro does, with the added screen in the middle to extra functionality.
IMHO, it's almost like to have a DS and play it with one screen covered or making a new DS with only one screen so thirdies could do lazy ports without worrying with the other screen.
fredtoy commented on Feature: Batman's Nintendo Adventures:
I wish to add Batman: Return of the Joker (NES) and The Adventures of Batman & Robin (SNES) to the list. Both are great games and Return of the Joker is a technical achievement for the NES.
Played a lot of Ghost Recon: Shadow Wars (3DS) and Diablo III (PC) this weekend.
fredtoy commented on Limber Up for Decathlon 2012 on 26th July:
If it plays the same way Atari 2600's Dechatlon used to, it will break your DS and give you a repetitive strain injury.
fredtoy commented on E3 2012: Wii U Tech Specs Revealed:
I see a lot of people complaining about the lack of internal HD or support to external ones. I don't see the point. On X360 or PS3 (as people tend to compare), the internal HD is used to install games (retail and download) , store music and movies. As WiiU will not serve as media center and retail games will not be installed on the HD, only downloadable games will use storage media on the console. Assuming that the average downloadble game will use about 1GB of storage space, one 32 GB SDHC card will hold about 30 of them. I think it's a fair number.
fredtoy commented on Nintendo Download: 31st May 2012 (North America):
I bet people will complain about the lack of a WiiWare title or Wii demo this week. =P
fredtoy commented on Rayman Origins 3DS Hits North America on 5th June:
@VintageBoy said:"I played the demo, honestly I wasn't all impressed. Don't get me wrong - Rayman Origins is a phenomenal game, and if you can't pick it up on another platform then you should definitely get it on this. The problem is, the game is considerably better on the other platforms. The graphics retain their fluid animation, but the price for this is downscaling the quality. Add to that that it seems to be a direct port of a game designed for 1080p (1920 pixels wide) shrunken down to a screen 400 pixels wide. As a result, Rayman et al are tiny onscreen and there's a considerable blurriness to the art. Some larger graphics actually look quite badly JPEG'd.The 3D effect is nice, I'll say, but this game in HD (or even just simply bigger at 480p the Wii) on the other consoles is better."
Exactly my opinion about the game. I played the demo, liked the game, found the 3D effect good, but, Rayman and the other characters are so tiny. You just can't see the details on the characters and scenario.
fredtoy commented on Rumour: This is Wii U's Controller Charging Dock:
It woulde be great if this controller could show messages and notifications while Wii U is in stanby mode. It would be great too if it could be used in a similar way as an alarm clock while the console sleeps and it's at the dock. The alarm clock software could be something similar to Mario clock on DSiWare.
fredtoy commented on UK Chart Results Are Less Than Golden for Nint...:
I do not live in UK and went there only once in my lifetime. When I was there, I got the impression that Sony and PlayStation as brands are very strong in UK. I think this and the whole GAME bankruptcy thing an it not carrying or giving enough shelf space for Nintendo systems games are affecting the sales.
fredtoy commented on Organise Your Home Menu With New 3DS Update:
Great news! These folders will be a good help for me to organize my home. Like Demo folder, VC folder, eShop folder, Mii Folder, etc...
This weekend I hope to finish Fluidity and Star Parodier.
fredtoy commented on MDK2 Dev Will Never Develop for Nintendo Again:
I will unplug my Wii, box it, and stop having fun with it. It's wrong. ¬¬
fredtoy commented on Capcom: "No Plans for Resident Evil 6 Wii U At...:
Resident Evil 4 is Game Cube exclusive. Some time later... RE4 on everything but the kitchen sink.
fredtoy commented on Gearbox: Wii U Out-RAMs Xbox 360 and PS3:
@Burning_Spear I guess the same.
Between many things, I keep imagining that radar thing on the Wii U's controller screen.
fredtoy commented on Review: Star Parodier (Virtual Console / Turbo...:
I'm playing it right now. One word: Wonderful!
fredtoy commented on Feature: How 3DS Brings a New Dimension to the...:
This:"Nintendo eschewed current-day technology in favour of finding a unique angle and putting it forward in old technology."
Since the times of late Gunpei Yokoi Nintendo thinks this way. The Game & Watch series and classic Game Boy were designed with this in mind.
fredtoy commented on Review: Shinobi III: Return of the Ninja Maste...:
@RetroLuma91 "My favorite Shinobi game of all time."
It's mine too. I dare to say it's my favorite Mega Drive game of all time.
fredtoy commented on Review: Shinobi (3DS Virtual Console / Game Gear):
I was curious about the Game Gear games on 3DS VC, but I was on the fence about getting any of them. This review made me want to play Shinobi.
fredtoy commented on Capcom Admits It Can't 'Sugarcoat' Its Revelai...:
@mikeman-m That's what I think. In 10 years this version will be sold for a small fortune on eBay. People who whined about it now will brag about having a collector's item.
fredtoy commented on Rumour: Wii U "Twice as Powerful as Xbox 360":
What unit is used to measure this so-called power? ¬¬
